José Samuel's story

José 65 years old. He is a person who can't find a job easily, and because of his financial needs, he started with a small sales stall. It was very well received and due to the great product demand, he decided to open a convenience store where he sells candies, baked goods, beverages, and dairy products. José dreams of expanding his business and making improvements. That is why he has asked for the loan to acquire merchandise (dairy products, cookies, snacks, candies), as well as materials to make improvements on his store (repairing and painting the walls). This will allow him to offer his customers a nice, pleasant place where they can find a variety of economic products. José has the advantage of being well known in the area as a friendly man who is a fighter. Thanks to that, he will have the ability to multiply his income and his quality of life will improve little by little to enjoy a peaceful old age.
